Fasting and Prayer

I never thought I would write this down. However today that 8th of November I find myself doing just that, writing down my experience in fasting. Fasting to me was easy, so I didn’t fast. I could go without meals and it would not trouble me. I stopped fasting due to this for many years…

Conquering Sin

Prayers are good, sometimes prayers we make or even prayers someone else makes and which we repeat. Prayer draws us closer to God. However having said that there is just a couple of things. 1) I cant loose focus and think a prayer delivers me from sin. A good point of view in normal situations….

Forgiveness

Forgiving someone is possible, Loving that same person is a gift from God. 2Sa 1:11  Then David took hold of his clothes, and rent them; and so did all the men who were with him; 2Sa 1:12  and they mourned and wept and fasted until evening for Saul and for Jonathan his son and for…

Acknowledge him

Luke 10:39-40 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help…

Your Sins are Forgiven.

Luke 7:47 47 Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little.” Through Love I have the ability to have my sins forgiven. The more I love the more I long to love. When Jesus called Mary and said your sins…

Meekness and what it is as a Christian.

It’s been quite interesting studying the cloud of unknowing. The thirteenth chapter talks about Meekness. The interesting part for me is learning that there are two types of meekness. The first is when meekness is caused by anything other than God. And the second is when it is caused by God. The first is imperfect…

From him comes my salvation.

Psalms 62:1 1 For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. Sounds good doesn’t it, the question is how do I do this. Yes from God comes my salvation. But how do I wait for it, isn’t there someway I can automate it. Or some way I can make it…

What do I seek?

Why do I pray like this? and what do I have after all this prayer?  It’s a question I have asked myself over the last few years, I have seen quite a few things happen in my life and have wondered why I believe in God, and why do I continue to follow him in…
